I have no idea what planet you live on. Here on Earth, what is considered fair is the same percentage paid. If a person makes x, they pay n percent of x. If a person makes y, they pay n percent of y.<quoted text>
Is that all you guys focus on, trying to paint a picture of handouts instead of what the country calls on everyone to contribute. The ideal of living in a place where you can make as much as you want just contribute the same percentage in taxes as everyone else. Everyone else see's that as being fair and above board but not you guys. It's all about the amount paid compared to the other guy. What sort of f...d up mind would consider that fair, well the likes of Hannity is one of them.
If you were making a million$ a year and the neighbour next door 35K who only paid $6k in taxes would you expect to only pay $6K on that million as well ? Because that is what the baggers cry foul about distorted logic that makes no sense.
If a person took advantage of the opportunities offered to every single person in the country, and chose to study something useful to the economy, and studied instead of hanging out with the bros all night, and got a job, and showed up for work every day ON TIME, and did what they were paid to do, and became a student of their profession, then that person would have a very good living standard, and that person would pay more taxes than a person who wasted every opportunity of their life and was a leech on the system.
If everyone had to pay their fair share of what the government they voted for costs, then I guarantee you they wouldn't be voting for a bunch of thieves and frauds flying a Marxist flag. And, we wouldn't have 16 trillion dollars of debt. And, we would have a goddam plan for government instead of the insanity we have now. If they had to pay for what they vote for, they'd vote for people that wouldn't cost them everything they have.
If you make only 10 thousand dollars a year, you owe a certain percentage of that in taxes. Period. End of statement.
No exceptions. No excuses.
Everybody pays their fair share of what the government costs.
